Statement of Accounts 2012/13
September 27th, 2013
Approval of the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner Statement of Accounts 2012/13.
For accounting purposes, the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner (the Commissioner) is the parent entity of the Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Constabulary and together both corporations sole form a ‘Group’.
For 2012/13 the accounts of the Chief Constable are, essentially, zero (organisation in existence but future risks and benefits remain with the Commissioner at this stage). However, two sets of accounts have been produced and audited.
The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2011 require the Chief Finance Officer(s) to sign, by 30th June, that the accounts present a true and fair view of the financial position as at 31st March. The draft accounts were submitted to the external auditor at the end of June 2013.
The Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable must approve their audited minutes by 30th September. The Joint Audit Committee meeting on 18 September 2013 provided the vehicle for that approval.
The draft accounts were open for inspection in the four week period ending 13th September 2013.
The audit has been carried out by Ernst and Young and the accounts will be published on the websites in due course.
